    Just wanted to say that I got a J Crew super 120s suit for Christmas, and today the hem fell out of the pencil skirt. So, there’s that.

    I wasn’t that old when I got married. I had children, and I’m not gay. But I always new that I would keep my maiden name. It’s just my name, and I don’t want to change it.

      Agreed! I’m 27 and will be getting married in a few months. We plan to have children in the future and changing my name wouldn’t have an affect on my career but my name is my name and I like it. I don’t think I need any other reason or justification to keep my name.

    I hate the phrase “keeping your maiden name.” If you never changed your name, then you don’t have a maiden name. It’s just your name.
